Various Artists : Belgrade's Burning

The Serbian city may no longer be literally burning, but the eclectic strains of modern jazz, tribal folk and future funk compiled here by local DJ and producer Zeljko Kerleta suggest that Belgrade is, metaphorically speaking, on fire.

Necessary or evil? Turns out that Kerleta is Belgrade's very own Gilles Peterson, meaning that the vibes are distinctly late-night and seriously down-tempo. Coxless Pair's excitable 'Jive Samba' and 'Destiny Dawn' by veteran beatnik Alexander Sopchek enliven the smooth jazziness. 7/10
